5.0 out of 5 stars PG Plays Live...Again, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well theres been quite a lot of PG live DVD's of late and i think this has to be my favourite. Great picture and sound and for a deluxe edition pretty reasonably priced. Good varied setlist too. I'd like a complete performance of PG4 next please Peter.

3.0 out of 5 stars EXACTLY the same disc as 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wouldn't have minded so much but the Live Earth short film is still missing from the extras! The steel book does look great but they could've at least mentioned its exactly the same disc as the previous version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Tangerine Dream this time, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Re-pressing with the proper music on this time. A better picture disc design too. No border, exactly like the amazon picture shown. Glad they chose this design, looks way better. i'm currently very much enjoying The Battle Of Epping Forest. Yes, i am a bit sad. Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Two tiny complaints...., 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't give this anything other than five stars. Its an amazing box set and it all sounds great. My only gripe is that there are a few omissions (as have already been mentioned) and there is what sounds like a glitch at the start of The Magnificent Seven (3 seconds in). Apart from that its incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best NiN album since The Fragile, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hesitation Marks [VINYL] (Vinyl)
No complaints. Great album. Takes a few listens but very rewarding. People tend to be complaining about the electronics lacking guitars. Well theres plenty of treated guitars and who cares anyway. I'd be happy with a NIN album with just electronics. The production of course is incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy packaging but still worth it., 9 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
A bit of a bargain. I've been meaning to get the other De La Soul albums but never got around to it. So i got this, most of their back catalogue for ten pounds. The packaging is pretty rubbish. Badly printed cardboard sleeves, no inners, dull designed cd's crammed into a thin cardboard slipcase. The music i'm enjoying very much though, so five stars it is.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shalamar?, 27 May 2013
This review is from: Random Access Memories (Audio CD)
This album is dreadful. Unless you like Shalamar. It sounds like a bunch of musos showing off their funk/disco chops. The production is horrible. It all sounds far too slick, lacking any warmth. They have failed to re-create the classic 70's/80's sound they're obviously after. The songs are also very dull and that bloody vocoder!!! Maybe it will sound really cool in 5 years time but i highly doubt it. Almost unlistenable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the idiots....this is great!, 4 April 2013
This review is from: The Terror (Audio CD)
I can understand, if Do You Realize is your favourite Lips tune why some fans may be offended by the sound and songs of this album. The one star reviews are a bit harsh though.
Its dense, distorted and doesn't really contain many traditional song structures. It's obvious Wayne and Steven had a bit of a tough one last year for various reasons and this is the outcome. I think its a great piece of work. If you like Zaireeka or Embryonic i can't see how you can hate this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another Comment, 20 Mar 2013
This review is from: Holy Fire (Audio CD)
This is one of those reviews that mark down the album because of some technical error. Well I bought this cd for my husband and it turned out to be a dvd of Terry and The Twizzlers Live in France 1982. So be warned, it might not be what you ordered. Luckily it turned out The Twizzlers are much superior in force and melody then Foals. Thanks Amazon!

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great., 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Totally agree with the previous reviews. My only gripe is that some of the tracks sound weirdly muffled compared to the recent remasters. It seems obvious on Eden especially. I could be totally wrong about this. Also could have been longer. I'm just pleased Mark Hollis did something.
